Why We Love This Product!

An Interface Your Studio Can Grow Into!

The MOTU 828x is all about giving you exactly what you need at the very heart of your system. In a single rack space, the 828x packs 28 inputs and 30 outputs - that's way more than most professional studios had back in the day when hit records were being cut on a weekly basis. You also get a pair of top-quality mic pres, plus eight more line ins for 10 channels of analog recording and playback, as well as 16 channels of ADAT I/O and two more of S/PDIF I/O. You also get TOSLink capability, word clock I/O, and SMPTE synchronization, just for good measure. Factor in ultra-fast Thunderbolt connectivity plus USB too, and you've got an incredibly flexible interface with the MOTU 828x.

  • Highly-flexible 28-in/30-out audio interface with Thunderbolt and USB connectivity
  • Easily manage complex routing configurations with CueMix FX software mixer
  • Built-in DSP gives you high-quality reverb, EQ, and compression on inputs, outputs, and headphone mixes
